Hi Jim,

Just a quick thought from someone who used to hang out at some
Perl ng's. The *Perl* convention is:

perl Makefile.PL
make
make test
make install

That is how it is expected, and changing 'make test' to 'make check'
doesn't help anyone. In fact, it actually sets a poor example, as
READMEs and most all other Perl literature will say to use 'make test'.
